Flash Sales FAQ: Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About These Epic Deals


There’s something about a sale that gets us excited. Perhaps it’s the competitive nature—to buy before it’s gone—or the opportunity to snag more buzz-worthy beauty while still saving some money. For us, we love the shared excitement over tinted moisturizers, overnight masks, and eyeliners of every color. To our existing Glam Bag, BoxyCharm, and Icon Box subscribers, we hope you’ve enjoyed IPSY Flash as much as we have. If you’re new to the fam, welcome to the party! Below is every detail about our monthly Flash sales.

So, What Are Flash Sales?

Flash is your golden ticket to coveted faves at incredible prices. You score skincare, makeup, beauty tools, and more, but you better hurry. With only five days to shop and limited stock, these deals sell out fast.

When Do Flash Sales Occur?

IPSY members with Glam Bag can access Flash right after completing Choice around the 20th to 26th of the month. BoxyCharm and Icon Box subscribers go directly to Flash without choosing first, since their Build Your Box happens from the 1st through the 3rd. We’ll email you when it’s time to start shopping!
